Corporate and municipal bond markets. Public security financing
5y~iroipui8ri:ions this week will approximate last week's modest volume,
with over half the total accounted for by a $40 million bond offering
of General Telephone Company of California. In contrast, this week's
municipal financing will be about double last week's level; a $90 million package of Public Housing Authority bonds will make up roughly
one-third of this total. Also scheduled for this week is a $179 million
offering of 20-month bonds of the Federal Land Banks.

V Federal Reserve estimates based upon published reports of issues
sold and scheduled for offering; corporate rights offerings are
included as of the date subscription rights expire.
Capital Markets in November. Security financing to obtain
new capital by corporations totaled $1,450 million in November, a record
for that month and over twice as much as a year earlier. Gross public
bond offerings aggregated $630 million--compared with only $30 million
in November 1964.
This heavy volume, in conjunction with the substantial buildup in the calendar of new corporate offerings for December and early
next year, applied upward pressure to yields. Between late October and
the opening week of December, the corporate new issue series--adjusted
to Aaa basis--advanced 16 basis points to its highest level since late
1960 and 8 basis points above thersakof last August. Yields of close
to 5.00 per cent offered to investors by three large finance company
issues, comprising almost one-half of last month's total offerings,
resulted in their quick distribution. Most other negotiated offerings
were also well received, but those put up for competitive bidding met
with a mixed reception. Underwriters, however, promptly terminated

price restrictions on slow moving issues and yields subsequently adjusted upward to current levels in free market trading. Consequently,
unsold syndicate balances are practically nonexistent.
Sales of State and local government bonds for new capital
during November totaled $950 million, about two-fifths more than a
year earlier. With the impact of this heavy volume of new offerings,
yields on seasoned Aaa-rated bonds rose 5 basis points to 3.37 per
cent in early December--their highest level since mid-1961. Other
yield series on outstanding issues rose 10 basis points or more,
while major price concessions on a number of new issues were reported
to have raised yields as much as 20 basis points. Despite such concessions, advertised inventories remained near the $700-million mark.
Common stock prices eased somewhat on balance during November
in very active trading. After reaching a new high of 92.63 on November
15, Standard and Poor's index of 500 stock prices declined 1% per cent
to close at 91.27 on December 3. Trading volume averaged 7.4 million
shares a day during the month.
Estimated security financing in December. Because of the
expected seasonal bulge in takedowns of private placements at year's
end, the volume of corporate security financing to obtain new capital
is estimated at $1.7 billion in December--about the same as last year.
This volume of financing in the final month of this year will bring
the total for the fourth quarter to a record $4.2 billion and the sum
for 1965 to $15.2 billion, one-sixth greater than the previous record
high established in 1964.
During December, municipal bond financing for new capital
is expected to total $0.8 billion, about one-sixth less than the
monthly peak reached at the close of 1964. Nevertheless, financing
for the fourth quarter should be a record $2.5 billion bringing the
total for 1965 to $10.4 billion, approximately 2 per cent above last
year's record sum.
FNMA secondary market operations. Purchases of FHA-insured
and VA-guaranteed mortgages by the Federal National Mortgage Association
in the secondary market advanced again in October to a level of $78.5
million. This was the highest for any month since early 1962 and compared with only $24.0 million a year earlier and with $16.3 million in
October of 1963.
Offerings to FNMA from private investor portfolios accelerated
sharply in October to more than double the already advanced level in
September. At $209.9 million, the October level virtually matched the
record reached in October of 1956. Apart from the increased pressure
for loanable funds by commercial banks and other mortgage holders, a
factor in the upsurge of sales to FNMA has been the increased attractiveness of FNMA prices which so far have been maintained.
Underscoring the shift within the mortgage market in recent months,
sales to FNMA by private mortgage holders were literally nil in October.
